COVID-19 Impact:

Disruptions in Supply Chain and Reduced Seeding Activities to Impede Market Progress

This market is expected to be negatively affected during the COVID-19 pandemic due to disruptions in the supply chain.

Furthermore, the halt on transport led to wastage, thereby affecting business. Moreover, lack of raw materials led to a decline in seeding activities. However, the adoption of reduced capacities, technologically advanced production machinery, and sanitization methods may enable manufacturers to recover their losses. These factors may positively impact market development during the pandemic.
